About St Peter and St Paul Catholic Primary School

Our Blessed Saints Federation brings together two Catholic Primary Schools: Ss Peter & Paul in Newport, Shropshire and St Luke's in Trench, Telford, Shropshire. The schools are located within 7 miles of each other, the area being forecast to be a growth point in local economic strategies with new housing developments across the region, and an award winning Town Park.

Each of our schools are unique and special and strive to play a vital role at the heart of our local communities. Our polite, well behaved, lively and enthusiastic children are very keen to learn. Skilled and talented staff teams work hard to provide first class learning for our children.
